Stonecutters Ridge hosting the NSW Open

5th hole at Stonecutters Ridge

When we originally decided to build at Stonecutters Ridge, we were promised that one day, this golf course would be a contender for major tournaments. The course didn’t even open for at least a year after moving in, but this promise has eventuated.

The 2014 NSW Open forms part of the PGA Tour of Australasia and will be played at Stonecutters Ridge Golf Club, near Blacktown, from 13-16 November. Entry to the course is FREE.

With the historic NSW Open to be held at Stonecutters Ridge Golf Club next month, organizers have received tremendous support from local and
national businesses keen to anchor the event in the Greater Western Sydney heartland. Coca-Cola Amatil (CCA) have shown tremendous support of golf across Australia through their association with both Golf NSW and separately with the PGA of Australia.

Radio 2GB will again be lending their powerful support of the event through their large listening audience, and are valuable media partners of the tournament. To be able to reach over 600,000 different people each week across a broadcast area that stretches north to Budgewoi, west to Katoomba and south-west to Picton, it is acknowledged as the No.1 station for all listeners aged 30 and over.

In addition to Radio 2GB, the NSW Open has also secured Sky Radio as another media partner. Their popular breakfast program “Big Sports
Breakfast” will be broadcast ‘live’ from Stonecutters Ridge on the mornings of the first round (Thursday 13th November) and of the final round (16th November).

The press release in its entirety can be read here.

The Stonecutters Ridge Golf Course has matured significantly since it opened. While the club itself continues to experience growing pains since moving from Ashlar, the ongoing maintenance of the course is exceptional and a day on the course here is great day out. The NSW Open will no doubt be a successful event that should see the NSW Open find a home here for years to come.

Stonecutters Ridge Clubhouse Construction Underway

Stonecutters Ridge ClubhouseConstruction traffic on our street has increased over the last few months as large earth moving equipment have started to shape the surrounding landscape to make way for the newest divisions of Stonecutters Ridge to be built. But earlier this week, a momentous occasion was reached with Medallist commencing construction on the golf course clubhouse – the focal point for what is intended to be Northwest Sydney’s premier golf club.

Changes to Stonecutters Ridge Master Plan

We live in a world of asterisks. Everything comes with a warning or footnote. I suppose Stonecutters Ridge was no exception. On a walk in between rain showers this weekend, Megan & I noticed the new billboard in front of the sales centre was slightly different. Upon close inspection, it appears the remaining releases for Stonecutters Ridge will deviate from the original design. Luckily, it appears to be for the better. Check it out…

It’s not open yet, but the course is already looking good – especially in the late afternoon sun. Stonecutters Ridge Golf Course will surely become a popular place to play a round of golf, considering it looks this good almost a year before it’s set to open.
